Something for the weekend........

Hi crafty friends, hope you're all well!
I'm loving this 'stash busting' attitude I have right now, I'm finding lots of things I'd forgotten I had & so everything I find feels like something new! It's great to be back blogging again, especially with my new laid back attitude lol! Accepting my limitations makes a huge difference wise I can no longer craft  for as long as or in the same way as I used to but accepting that and crafting as & when I can (even if it's only for 5 mins) makes such a huge difference. 
So today I have a steampunk card to share......a little decoupage, some gold cogs......and I used an embossing folder! How long is it since you used one of them? It turned a plain, old piece of gold mirri into a piece of luxury card.......just beautiful. A best wishes sentiment means it'll fit almost any occasion too.
Thanks for stopping by & for any comments you might leave....have a lovely weekend!

  3. A great card Jo,, love the black and gold with the Steampunk theme. I think we all have lots of 'forgotten' items hiding in our stash and it's good to get them out and use them, I'm making an effort to ink up my old stamps, but the new goodies keep calling out to me!
    Have a lovely weekend.
